I am pleased the one day “Lightroom for black and white photographers” seminar I am running on 11th May in Bristol with Calumet Photo Stores will be mentioned in the news sections of Black and White Magazine and the RPS Journal.I will also try to advertise the seminar in Amateur Photographer magazine nearer the date.
Come and learn the simple but powerful black and white photography workflow that has allowed me to know the simple secret of how to become a first-class photographer.
I find this an interesting picture, for the purists amongst you, you will hate the areas of solid black were there is no detail in the shadows. But from me this picture relies on the three highlights which form a triangular composition. The mood is created by the darkness and the lack of detail. For me detail doesn’t necessarily equal truth and relevance.
This was taken down in Dungeness in Kent at 125th at f8. This is my interpretation of the subject and is not a literal representation. I have chosen to accent the highlights and to darken and everything else around them to create contrast. Remembering of course that black and white photography is about contrast. I tried various versions of this picture in differing brightness ‘s and found this version to be partially satisfactory.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog this week.
